BREAKING: Aircraft with 157 persons on board crashes
An Ethiopian Airlines plane has crashed with 149 passengers and 8 crew onboard, minutes after take-off.
DailyMail reports that the plane heading to Nairobi left Ethiopia Sunday morning but according to reports came down within six minutes.
A spokesman for the airline confirmed the plane had crashed while heading from Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa.
The airline’s statement said: “At this time search and rescue operations are in progress and we have no information about survivors or any possible casualties.”
The state-owned Ethiopian Airlines calls itself Africa’s largest carrier and has ambitions of becoming the gateway to the continent.
The plane, a 737 MAX 8, is believed to be a new addition to the EA fleet having been delivered just months ago.
